Annamaria Lammel works pro bono for the IPCC (known as the GIEC in France) to write rapports on climate change that serve as a base for decision making. As an eco-psychologist and anthropologist she researches how people situate themselves towards nature. Because as long as people don’t feel part of nature, they won’t adapt vis-à-vis climate change. And if one (animal, man or plant) can’t adapt to the climate changes, the impact will be terrible. Western society is thus very vulnerable. Lammel is coaching people who want to act pro-environment, but can’t make it. They have a cognitive bias, just as someone who smokes: even if you tell him it is lethal, he will not change his behavior. We always find a story to tell oneself, when we buy a polluting car we say: ‘‘yes but anyway, I can’t change the climate alone.’’ The hope lies in the fact that people imitate one another, just as we copy people and dress all quite alike, we should imitate behavior that is conscious of the urgency of climate change.
